Striker to return next week

Wolves have recalled striker Liam McAlinden from his loan spell with Shrewsbury.

The 20-year-old striker will report back to Compton on Monday to rejoin the Wolves squad ahead of a busy period of fixtures over the Christmas schedule.

McAlinden made nine appearances during his two months with Shrewsbury – five of them starts – and chipped in with three goals.

“Liam has done really well during his time at Shrewsbury and scored some important goals for them,” said Wolves’ Head of Football Development and Recruitment Kevin Thelwell.

“It has been a great experience for him and will certainly have helped his development.

“We are now heading into a very busy period of fixtures and feel it is the right time to bring Liam back to Wolves to add to the cover and competition in the striking positions.”

McAlinden, a product of the Wolves’ Academy, made his first team debut at Molineux as a substitute against Burnley at the back end of last season, and scored his first goal in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy at the start of the current campaign.

The visit of MK Dons to Molineux a week tomorrow is the first of a spell of six games in 21 days.
